Watch an expert guide as he fishes and discloses the secrets
and proven methods that put fish on the beach.

More Excellence !!!
Dec Hogan Joins The Fly Fishing Shop Instructor Staff


Dec Hogan has often been referred to as “a guide’s guide” and “a steelheader’s steelheader.” Why? Because he knows his stuff inside and out. The boon to that is he’s as passionate and adept about teaching and sharing information as he is doing it. Hogan lived the dream guiding steelhead fly anglers year ‘round on many of The Pacific Northwest’s premier rivers from 1989 through 2003. Now Dec is realizing his other dream occupation and is a fulltime Firefighter/EMT in Layton, Utah. A retirement pension, health insurance, and job security ain’t such a bad thing either. Hogan’s schedule at the firehouse allows him ample time to continue instructing and entertaining the fly fishing masses and designing rods for Echo, and fly lines for Airflo. He has written, and continues to write for, many of North America’s fly fishing publications, is an accomplished photographer and is one of the world’s foremost sought after spey casting instructors. Dec has starred in both spey casting and fly tying instructional DVD’s as well as authoring the highly acclaimed must-have book, A Passion for Steelhead. Wild River Press.

Flies For Early Winter Steelhead
Get Their Attention. Show Them Something Pink!
Guide Intruder Sig. Intruder Pick Yer" Pocket Bantam
Fresh steelhead often enter fresh water with the memories of their saltwater prey indelibly etched on their tiny little minds. Along the Pacific Coast of Oregon & Washington during the winter (December-March) months there is a dense population of pinkish colored cocktail shrimp. Winter is when they reproduce. These shrimp are often found in near-shore waters over the continental shelf. These shrimp live in the deep ocean during the day and migrate to the surface during the night. This is a feature of the life style of many ocean critters. Could this account for the fact that steelhead are often more active during low light conditions?
Although many shrimp species are found in waters off Oregon, the pink shrimp also known as the ocean shrimp (Pandalus jordani) is the only one found in quantities large enough to be commercially harvested. Pink shrimp have been harvested in Oregon since 1957. Populations vary widely from year to year, which is common for many short-lived crustaceans. Landings in 2005 were 15 million pounds and have averaged 26 million pounds per year over the last 31 years.
The pink shrimp is a small shrimp in comparison to many shrimp and prawns seen in supermarkets and restaurants. The market category for pink shrimp is often referred to as "cocktail shrimp", "salad shrimp" or simply "coldwater shrimp", because the major species that are harvested at these small sizes come from cold marine waters. Pink shrimp in Oregon have a life span of only four years and one and two year olds are the most common ages found in the commercial catch.

Guide Intruder, Pink
Scott Says, "My years fishing in BC also made me a strong believer in the color pink. I had too many fish pulled out behind me by friends fishing the notorious pink worm to not be an advocate of pink. As a result, there was a time when a pink Guide Intruder was about all I fished in BC unless colored water forced me to go darker. As I look back at the photo albums from my time spent up North, it is no coincidence that just about every fish has a pink mop hanging from its jaws. I have since found

pink to be productive on most steelhead rivers up and down the coast."

Signature Intruder, Pink & Orange

Pink and orange is hot for fresh Steelhead, Coho, and Chinooks. This is a smaller, lighter-weight version than the Guide Intruder offered above. Do these hot pinkish/orange flies represent squid or shrimp? do we really care as long as they work?

Morejohn's Bantam, Pink
The Pink Bantam at right has hooked two steelhead. When I inventoried pictures for the Bantam page, it was realized that a pink model hadn't been added to the mix. The two alternatives were to drive to the shop and pick up a new pretty one, or raid my chest-pocket zip-lock for a used one. You know which was the least amount of effort. The best looking used one was a wrinkled looking mess, which of course happens when they are put away wet. So I applied a liberal amount of saliva & preening, along

with some blow drying. And there you have the slightly dishevel, but slim and graceful little pink critter in the picture. Remembering how great it felt, the two steelhead she hooked. One was a screamer, the other was a kelt.
